 Adventure Education

 Adventure Education asks students to step outside of their "comfort zone" to learn more about who they are and how they interact with others. While done in an environment that focuses on safety, the challenges presented by adventure activities create opportunities to explore issues of trust, overcoming fear, self-confidence and teamwork.
